think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t

was the guy riding in the car with him when barack obama went to take the oath, the guy who left him with a stock market crashing through the floor. a 4,000 point drop in a year heading toward a 7500 point drop by the following march. "w." he left the new president with a jobless number that spiked over 10% by the following year, a financial crash so bad that the republican candidate for president in 2008 asked for time out to deal with it. a calamity outmatched only by the great crash in '29. so ask it yourself, is this country better off in the direction "w" was taking us, really? we'll get to that in a minute. first, we have new poll numbers in the presidential race. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. here it is according to the new "washington post"/abc poll, president obama with a one-point lead over mitt romney among likely voters. among all registered voters, the president's lead is six points. joining me is governor ed rendell who was leading pennsylvania through that transition from "w" to obama and douglas brinkley. the great american historian and author of "cronkite."

"w." you want to hear it louder? "w." he was the guy riding in the car with him when barack obama went to take the oath, the guy who left him with a stock market crashing through the floor. a 4,000 point drop in a year heading toward a 7500 point drop by the following march.

convention, tonight fess vifts building up to first lady michelle obama. here is a look at highlights. >> i am honored to accept your nomination for president of the united states. wait. this is not my speech! prompter guy can we pull up my speech, please? this is awkward. >> you see this platform is a clear choice. between economic pathways forward or back, inclusion or exclusion, grow together as a nation or be a country of savage disparity that's favor the fortunate few. over the greatest driving force of any economy. a large and robust middle class. >> this nation has been through hard times. but those hard times have hardened our resolve. i'm ready to do the difficult work for a second. i want to do that work with barack obama and not a tea party i'd hola log. we can move america forward but we can only do it together. >> republicans tell us that in the most prosperus among us do even better that somehow, the rest of us will, too. folks... we've heard that before. first they called it trickle down. they called it fly side. now it's romney ryan or is it ryan romney. either way, it's bee
the arab world. what did the attacks say about the the obama administration's foreign policy. and was mitt romney wrong to criticize the response? plus, as the presidential race kicks into high gear, will the presidential post convention bounce last? rumors of the republican tickets demise premature? welcome to the journal editorial report. i'm paul gigot. anti-american protests spread across the arab world this week over a film in defense of islam and the prophet muhammad following the murder thursday of four american diplomates. including united states ambassador chris stevens in benghazi, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time
, for the people. god of wisdom, justice, and might, we ask your wisdom in governing us. president obama, vice president biden, congress, the supreme court, and all those including mitt romney and paul reiser and who seek to serve the common good by serving in office. help them remember the only just government is the government that serves its citizens rather than itself. with your grace, may all americans choose wisely as we consider the future course of public policy, and finally, we beseech your benediction on all of us who depart from here this evening and on all those in every land who yearn to conduct their lives in freedom and justice. we beg you to remember those who are not free, those who suffer for freedom's cause, those who are poor, out of work, needy, sick, or alone, those who are persecuted for religious convictions or ravaged by war. we thank you for the gift of our beloved country, for we are one nation under god, and in god we trust, so god bless america, you who rain for ever, amen. >> amen. >> please welcome the 2012 share of the democratic national convention, mayor anton
to the policies that got us into an historic level mess when president obama took over and the things we need to do to dig out and move forward together. >> what was the feeling inside the room with president clinton puzzle speech? >> electric. everybody was excited to have someone explain what has actually been going on as opposed to listening to eight regurgitated smokescreen of rhetoric -- to a regurgitated smokescreen of rhetoric -- of rhetoric. people ask me what i do with these credentials of what i heard was that they will be asked to another event in the future so they can use them and say -- see the president's speech. >> the important thing is that people around the country hear the president tomorrow. it is likely to be in the building but the main thing is for him to make the case to the american people and explain that a lot of what is being said is absolutely wrong and that he has us on a course where we can recover from the economic downturn and get people in this country an opportunity to regret let me turn to a first-time delegate. -- opportunity. >> let me turn to a first-ti
obama and the entitlement society that he enables. while conserve tests and fiscally conservative americans are applauding him, they are attempting to spin this into a gaffe. they are arguing mitt romney is engaging in class warfare and turning his back on voters. let's look at the video. it features gov romney speaking to supporters at a fundraiser way back in may. let's take a look. >> there are 47 percent of the people that are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you name it. that that's an entitlement. and the government should give it to them. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and i mean the president starts off with 48, 49. he starts off with a huge number. these are people who pay no income tax. forty-seven percent of americans pay no income tax. so our message of low tax doesn't connect. so he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. i mean that's what they sel
. republicans have common-sense proposals to remove these. president obama puts governments first. he wants to raise taxes on small businesses. he wants to keep our energy races under lock and key including the keystone xl pipeline. he wants more spending that will put us in debt to china. more of the same. where are the jobs that no wonder jobs are fleeing overseas. let's bring those jobs home, back to america, back to local businesses. there is one more thing i tell people. i tell them i have made restoring the american dream my life work. without it i would not be where i am today. eiger up in an under privilege neighborhood. i was the first person in my family to attend college. my mother and grandmother started cleaning the house is again when i did not have enough money for law school and my brother gave me everything he had. i would tell myself that if i ever got out of the environment i gear up when i would work hard to get others out and make it easier for them to have the same opportunities that have given me a chance to make a difference. that is why i am running for congress. it
but first, tonight, headlines the first lady michelle obama. >> well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moms that have tested my husband in ways i never could have imagined, i have seen firsthand, that being president doesn't change who you are. no. it reveals who you are. you see, i have gotten to see up close and personal what being president really looks like. i've seen how issue that's come across the president's desk are always hard ones. you know problems where no amount of data or numbers will get you to the right answer. judgment call stakes are high and there is no margin for error. you're going to get all kinds of advise from all kinds of people but at the end of the day when it comes time to make that decision aas president all have you to guide you are your values and your vision and the life exkbreerns that's make you who you are. barack knows american dream because he has lived it. and he wants everyone in this country everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from, what we look like, or who we love. and... he believes that
that when it comes to his character and his convictions and his heart, barack obama is still the same man i fell in love with all those years ago. he is the same man who started his career by turning down high-paying jobs and instead of working and struggling -- in struggling neighborhoods where steel plant shutdown, fighting to rebuild communities and get folks back to work. because for barack, success is not about how much money you make. it is about the different to make in people's lives. -- the diffrence you make in people's lives. he is the same man when our girls were first born with anxiously checked their cribs every few minutes to ensure they were still breathing, proudly showing them off to everyone we knew. you see, that is the man who sit down with me and our girls for dinner nearly every night, patiently answering questions about issues in the news, strategizing about middle school french ships -- friendships. that is the man i see in this quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him. the latter are the father struggling to p

in this country, those who give, like him, and those who take and loaf and vote for obama. joining me now is david corn with mother jones the author of "showdown," out in paper back, and "new york times" jonathan heilemann. we have new tape to show you from that fund-raiser including what he said about the israeli/palestinian conflict. before we get to that, here is that shocking tape from romney talking about the 47% of americans who he says are definitely not voting for -- are definitely voting for obama, not for him. he was answering a question from a donor apparently. the tape was first posted by the great mother jones magazine. let's watch. >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right. there are 47% who are with him who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. that that's an entitlement and the government should give it to them. and they will vote for this president no matter what. an

to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things
